The CTX2 is a slimmer rectangular variation of our V1TX Audio Surveillance Transmitter. Measuring a mere 25mm x 15mm with a thickness of 0.8mm, this transmitter offers a compact and discreet form factor. The CTX2 comes pre-mounted with a button cell battery holder designed for a CR2032 battery, which provides an impressive 25-30 hours of continuous audio surveillance. This transmitter is now available with a new extremely sensitive KNOWLES microphone, and a new high-powered crystal generating 20mW of RF power, ensuring superior frequency stability and delivering enhanced audio sensitivity. For custom power options to extend the operating time, please feel free to contact us for further assistance.
Designed for covert operations, the CTX2 features a minimalist design with no switches or indicator lights, ensuring discreet usage.
Once the battery is inserted, the CTX2 functions as a permanent, always-on "hot-microphone," immediately initiating live transmission of ambient and surrounding audio without interruption on the Ultra High-Frequency band. In a cluttered urban environment, the CTX2 broadcasts audio over a distance of 500-800 meters, with a maximum range of 1 kilometer in Line-of-Sight (LOS) conditions. It effectively transmits audio through obstacles such as concrete, drywall, and dense vegetation, offering versatility in various monitoring scenarios. The transmitter operates efficiently on a single button cell battery.
Use the CTX2 to remotely listen to areas of interest that require discreet acoustic monitoring. We recommend utilizing any handheld UHF receiver capable of tuning into the standard frequency range of 400MHz-434MHz, which is supported by most UHF receivers. For optimal performance, we suggest the Baofeng UV-5R or the AnyTone AT-318UV as our recommended handheld receivers. Rest assured, your CTX2 will arrive with its specific Tx/Rx frequency clearly noted on its back for easy configuration with your receiver.
